Crazy For This Girl by Hazel Grace–Review

We all know Hazel for her dark, emotional, and lethal romances, but, hello world, Ms. Grace has just shown another side of herself and it’s a good one.

Crazy For This Girl is an uber emotional, contemporary romance of two best friends, Cal, and Laynee.  Cal and Laynee meet at her cabin’s lake house one summer and the rest is history. Through letters, calls, and visits to the lake, their friendship continues to grow and it’s a beautiful one until it isn’t. Here is where Hazel’s tortuous mind takes over and she has found a new way to torment us, with a different repertoire of words, evoking a new skill set of emotions, and feelings.

While there were MANY times throughout this book that I found myself cursing at these characters (both primary and secondary), felt like pounding my head against a wall, or downright facepalming, I also fell in love.

Despite being claimed by another reader (Dee😉), I also need to stake my claim to him. Cal is a beautiful soul, who has bravely withstood a lot. He has burrowed his way deep inside, forever leaving me with a piece of him. He is an understanding and sweet soul who has metamorphosed into the biggest a-hole with a chip on each of his shoulders. Despite all this, I fell in love with Cal.

Laynee is this vessel full of love, freely giving it away to anyone that she holds near and dear. Are things easy for this sailor swearing, bullheaded, and quick-witted girl? Nope, not even close, but this is Laynee, she’s tough when she needs to be and feisty.

CTFG is chock full of amazing characters with a prodigious storyline and plotline. Be prepared to swoon, laugh, cry, and get mad.

Gilded Cage by C. Lymari–Review

Gilded Cage is a dark romance retelling of Rumpelstiltskin with two unique characters from different worlds. In this case, we have Mason who is an outsider in his wealthy and powerful community. Mason, himself, feels weak and has one friend that he can relate to. The cherry on his ‘winning life’ sundae is that he has been blessed with a stepmother from H E double L. (**note the sarcasm**)

Aspen has only one job, which is to serve the Stiltskin family, and consequently, only knows of one life. Through this life, she meets one person that she connects with. Mason. She has no friends and no interaction except for what is maintained on the grounds she works for. One night proves to be her downfall when she makes a deal with the devil and doesn’t realize how bad it is until it is too late.

This story was so gritty, mysterious, a bucket full of emotions, a plot that would make a chess player proud, and twists and turns. I must admit that I either overlooked or forgot that this was a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin, but that didn’t hinder the visual imagery that Ms. Lymari was trying to portray. The ability to follow along in my head like a flipbook animation was addicting to read.

FIVE ‘OUTSTANDING’ STARS!!

Sinning Like Hell (St. Simeon Prep, #2) by Trilina Pucci–Review

Phew, she did it again! Ms. Pucci nailed the Romeo and Juliet theme with a twist of her own. Just Like Heaven left us on such a high cliffhanger, I wondered what was next. Sinning Like Hell (*chef’s kiss*) was the perfect continuation for Calder and Sutton!

“I want everything you give, Calder Wolfe. Because there is and will only ever be you and me.”

Here is some of what to expect: incredible highs, carpet sweeping lows, breath wheezing shock, twists, turns, ‘Oh, no, she didn’t,’ and of course, tears. This book had it all. I fully did not expect to cry, but low and behold, I did. Sinning Like Hell was so beautifully written that the love Calder and Sutton share is transcendent. There are no other words to describe it.

Reading this book has reaffirmed my love for Calder. He was written so well that he wasn’t a character to me. He was a real-life person that you could feel had stepped off the pages and right into your living room.

I stand by my review for Just Like Heaven and my description of Calder.

“Calder…tough, bada@@, sensitive, alpha, and loyal. He is the new gold standard in leading men.”

What to say about Sutton without giving it away? Hmmm… Sutton is a breath of fresh air. As a caterpillar metamorphosizes into a beautiful butterfly, so does Sutton. Her transformation is something to be proud of and I love that about her! These two were written in the stars and nothing was going to stand in their way!!

I love you forever. Until we’re dust and bones and even after that.”

In Silence She Screams (Midnight Mayhem #3) by Amo Jones–Review

Whoa. I suffered a severe book hangover. I needed a minute to process what I read and explore I how I felt. I admit that I am owned heart, body and soul to these characters and their worlds. I am in love and want more!

Oh my word, Lilith, Kyrin, and Eli, really know how to make a girl blush! The melding of Patience, Midnight Mayhem, and The Kings is fluid and the dynamic between these three is out of this world. The charismatic and panty dropping nature that is Eli was still prominent from his time with The Kings. Kyrin, um, hello yes please, I will take him to go! Thank you! Kyrin is ALPHA AF! He is possessive, growly, not short on confidence, and has masculinity oozing out of his pores. Lilith is the semi-new character in the world of mayhem. The life that Lilith brings to the table is deplorable and damaging. She is chaotic, tough, yet broken and emotionally detached, that is until she meets Eli and Kyrin.

I do not need to mention how incredible Amo’s writing is, but I will. Her ability to continue writing this all-consuming world and storyline is top notch and mind boggling. Just when you think you might have a grasp on the storyline, she flips the script. The twists, turns, and plain old bombs that she throws your way is absolute perfection. I truthfully cannot say enough about this.

What I will say is this is not everybody’s cup of tea. Did you catch I said three names in the beginning? That’s because this story involves a throuple. A perfect throuple, but still a throuple (I like saying that word😉). In Silence She Screams is dark, moody, it is enthralling and makes you forget where you are, but it is so delicious, like that last bite on devil’s food cake with extra frosting! Beware, be forewarned, but most definitely, be quick to read.

PS…that ending! Ho-lee, flipping cannoli, THAT ENDING!! This is the best Amo Jones that I have read!!!

Thank you, Amo Jones, thank you!!🖤

Marrying baseball phenom Cooper Lexington for his health insurance… doesn’t even rank Top 5.
